This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

On November 16, 1990, President George Bush signed the Act into law. The Act addresses the rights of lineal descendants, Indian tribes, and Native Hawaiian organizations to Native American human remains, funerary objects, sacred objects, and cultural patrimony with which they are affiliated. Section 9 of the Act authorizes the Secretary of the Interior (“the Secretary”) to assess a civil penalty against any museum that fails to comply with the requirements of the Act [25 U.S.C. 3007]. Such penalties must be assessed according to procedures established by the Secretary through regulation. An interim rule establishing civil penalty procedures was published in the Federal Register on January 13, 1997 (62 FR 1820), and went into effect on February 12, 1997. A final rule establishing civil penalty procedures was published in the Federal Register on April 3, 2003 (68 FR 16354), and went into effect on May 5, 2003. As published, the final rule contains an error that needs to be corrected.
Need for Correction: The correction clarifies the amendatory instruction to make it clear that the final rule published in the Federal Register on April 3, 2003 (68 FR 16354) replaces the interim rule published in the Federal Register on January 13, 1997 (62 FR 1820).Start List of Subjects
